1. What do Occupational Therapists do?
Occupational Therapists work to empower their clients to participate in, and safely manage, their important ADLs. Occupational Therapists achieve this by modifying the environment, prescribing equipment, or advising on alternative techniques. Occupational Therapists may also advise on suitable support services to support the person to achieve their care needs and goals.
2. What are ADLs?
ADLs = Activities of Daily Living.
The term ADLs applies to all of the activities that you need, and want, to complete in order to manage in the home, community and school or work place. We work to assist clients to maximise their safety and independence in the performance of necessary ADLs.
3. Do you have a waiting list
We work hard to see clients in a timely manner. We will contact clients within 5 days, and we aim to complete our first visit or assessment within 2 weeks. We will allocate referrals to the most suitable team member, dependent on their areas of experience and practice, current case load, and the geographical area.
4. What geographical areas do you cover?
Our clinic is in Woonona, which is a Northern suburb of Wollongong, however we provide mobile Occupational Therapy services across the Illawarra, Shoalhaven, Suuth Coast and Southern Highlands. We can visit other areas on request.
